Abstract: Purpose. To examine the concurrent and discriminative validity of the miniBESTest in individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Method: Thirty-four individuals with PD participated in study 1. Thirty-one healthy subjects and 127 individuals with PD completed study 2. All participants were assessed at the University Balance and motion analysis laboratory. Balance performance was assessed using the miniBESTest and Berg’s balance scale (BBS). Self-perceived balance confidence level of subjects was measured by the activities-specific balance confidence (ABC) scale.
Results: In study 1, results of Pearson’s correlation showed that the scores of the miniBESTest correlated well with BBS (r=0.765; p<0.001) and moderately well with ABC scores (r=0.587; p<0.001). For study 2, results of one-way analysis of variance demonstrated
